The successful candidate will receive a stipend which can be used towards accommodation, travel, or living expenses for the duration of the Fellowship, a book grant from Gorgias, and free admission to the summer Syriac course program. (The Institute holds annual courses teaching the Syriac language: Syriac I is for students with no prior experience in Syriac. Syriac II is geared towards students who have already done Syriac and would like to dig deeper into the grammar and nuances of the language. The successful candidate will be receiving free enrollment to Syriac II for the summer of 2019, from July 29 to August 16, 2019.)
The successful candidate may choose to complete the Fellowship at the Institute or, if travel is prohibitive, at their current institution provided that they are available during the term of the Fellowship via Skype. The successful candidate will be named The Herman & Mary K. Seibel Fellow in the Digital Humanities.
Interested candidates should send a cover letter and a CV to firstname.lastname@example.org, indicating if they are applying for a six-month or one-year Fellowship. Deadline for applications is December 15, 2018. The Fellowship start date is February 4, 2019.
